HOUSTON – Houston police are investigating a body found in a trash can inside Buffalo Bayou.

Investigators are still determining how the body got there.

Meanwhile, a heartbroken father is asking for the public’s help in figuring out what happened to his daughter.

On July 19, Houston police said they were alerted to a suspicious-looking container in the Buffalo Bayou near the 3600 block of Foley. HPD’s dive team and Houston Fire Department responded to the call and pulled out what turned out to be a trash can, tied up.

The Harris County Medical Examiner’s office determined that the body was of Shelby Vercher. Her father, Coy Vercher, received the dreaded call.

“It left a big hole in my heart,” Coy said. “Asking me if I know a Shelby Vercher. I said, ‘Yes, that’s my daughter,” [They said], ‘Well we have her and she’s dead,’ That’s what they told me.”

Coy said he had just seen his daughter on the prior Monday.

“[I told my daughter,] ‘I’m going to go home and get out of this heat. I love you. Call me when you get where you’re going,’ [She responded,] ‘Okay, daddy, I will,’ and that was the last words we said to each other,” Coy said.
